Active Norfolk has joined forces with the RYA to offer Norfolk-wide businesses a 6-week beginners sailing programme, culminating in an inter-workplace regatta competition. Now there are just a few places left on these great Workplace Challenge Learn to Sail courses, beginning next week.
During these sessions experienced RYA Instructors will coach individuals to sail their own boat and develop basic sailing skills to the point where they can rig the boat, sail around and get back to shore with confidence. In addition participants will be taught basic racing techniques to enable the teams to compete in the Workplace Challenge regatta in June. The regatta will be a fun event with the workplace sailing teams racing against one another, the winning team being crowned Workplace Challenge regatta champions. All participants will be eligible for further discounted sailing opportunities at the different venues following the programme.
Participants will be sailing individual small dinghies and will need a basic degree of physical fitness and agility, water confidence is required, but you do not need to be able to swim and do not need any prior sailing experience. All sessions will be safe and enjoyable, challenging and rewarding. Each person will be supplied with all necessary safety equipment and a boat. Participants should bring suitable footwear, clothing, towel and change of clothes.
